It is an inevitable mountain that those of us who choose to marry must surmount if we want to keep our union with our chosen mate and whether we admit to it or not, our in-laws DO have an effect on our relationships in a much more powerful manner than we would like to think.

There are so many variables when it comes to family life alone and there are even MORE sometimes confusing issues that can come at you so swiftly when it comes to the joining of two families through the institution of marriage as well as a committed relationship between two people. Tonight we deal with every possibility boldy and without restraint. We want to hear your experiences good and bad.
